Part time job making and serving food to customers (Current Employee), Kitchener, ONApril 10, 2015
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: constant turn over in staff
On a typical work day, I served university students working at a variety of places such as pita pit, pizza pizza, subway, teriyaki and booster juice. I have plenty of cashier experience dealing with the point of sale system and with each shift, I worked with new people so I have developed great people skills with both my coworkers and my customers. The most enjoyable part about the job was getting to know new people and developing the skills that I developed
